Congratulations to Dr. Kimura-Hara, recently announced as a new Tier 2 Canada Research Chair in Analytical and Aquatic Chemistry. Tier 2 Chairs, tenable for five years, are for exceptional emerging researchers, acknowledged by their peers as having the potential to lead in their field.
From the Canada Research Chair website:
“The Canada Research Chairs Program (CRCP) stands at the centre of a national strategy to make Canada one of the world's top countries in research and development. It invests approximately $295 million per year to attract and retain a diverse cadre of world-class researchers, to reinforce academic research and training excellence in Canadian postsecondary institutions.
Chairholders aim to achieve research excellence in engineering and the natural sciences, health sciences, humanities, and social sciences. They improve our depth of knowledge and quality of life, strengthen Canada's international competitiveness, and help train the next generation of highly skilled people through student supervision, teaching, and the coordination of other researchers' work.”
